    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    Awesome...so it is official now. Mugarian has signed! I really like his potential.

    Now, we just need to get Grandal, Waldrop and Cisco signed and we'll have had a great draft. Something tells me though we'll probably only get 2 of the 3. I hope they can nab all 3 though.

    Waldrop is probably money in the bank at this point. He wants to sign. Grandal, I would assume, will be signed on Aug 16th around midnight. Cisco is interesting. Highly polished, could start in Dayton next year. I like many others don't see college improving his stock much. I wouldn't be shocked if he ended up a Fairel, Sulbaran type deal around the 15th or 16th of August.

    The Reds’ fifth-round selection (No. 157 overall) in the June amateur entry draft, Mugarian signed for a $198,000 bonus and received several interesting perks.

    Originally signed to play college baseball at Alabama, he will receive $20,000 per semester from Cincinnati through the College Scholarship program. The Reds also agreed to fly Mugarian and his parents, John and Caroline, to Cincinnati on Sept. 10 during the Redsí series against Pittsburgh at Great American Ballpark where heíll throw a bullpen session for pitching coach Bryan Price.

    The Reds also agreed to fly John and Caroline to the teamís spring training home in Goodyear, Ariz., next year.


    I'm not sure how coming to watch Pittsburgh play is an "interesting perk". The college bit doesn't surprise me. Lots of teams are agreeing to this on younger players.

    They are going to fly his parents to Cincinnati in a hot air balloon. I think that qualifies as interesting.

    The quote on Waldrop seems to be the pervasive line. My brother in Ft. Myers says it's essentially a done deal rather than the Bulls scholarship because the kid wants to play baseball, period......

    That really is encouraging to hear. Waldrop sounds like he could develop into something special. Hope he gets done in the next couple weeks so he can at least get 50 or so AB's in the AFL.

    He won't be in the AFL. You must be in AA/AAA to be in the AFL with a few exceptions made. No team is ever sending a high school kid there. They would be eaten alive, big time.

    too bad, I would be very interested to see how Harper would perform in the AFL.

    My guess is nemesis is referring to the Arizona Summer League...

    From BA's description Cisco sounds like another Leake in the making, with excellent command of a number of pitches but without an overpowering fastball. That would seem to establish his ceiling in a college draft, but there is considerable risk in ever realizing it. I would think that a desire to get his career started plus something between third and fourth round money would get it done.

    Hence the exceptions. The Reds had to petition baseball to get him in there.

    According to reports, he wants at least sandwich round money.
